Bicycle NSW is the peak membership organisation for bike riding in NSW and is the only bicycle advocacy group in NSW with a team on the ground. For 47 years we have been promoting and supporting cycling in all its forms as a sustainable and healthy form of transport, recreation and tourism.
Your generous support can create real and lasting change for all bicycle riders in NSW!
We engage with community, industry and all levels of government. Recent advocacy campaigns focused on the Sydney Harbour Bridge ramp, the Sutherland to Cronulla Active Transport Link (SCATL), allowing unboxed bikes on regional trains, the Rail Trails Bill, e-bike subsidies, minimum passing distance rules and all the policy and cultural changes that will create Better Streets for NSW.
Alongside the main campaigns, the small Bicycle NSW team works hard every day to advocate for the best possible outcomes from major infrastructure projects such as Rozelle Interchange, Sydney Gateway, Warringah Freeway Upgrade, Parramatta Light Rail, Sydney Metro, M7 widening and M6 Stage 1.
Please look at the advocacy section of the Bicycle NSW annual report for further details about our work during 2022. Or dive into all the news articles and recent submissions. Some highlights are provided below. We have been very busy!
Did you know that we are only funded by public donations and membership fees?
It is actually better that we do not receive government grants as we can be non-partisan and say what we really think in our regular submissions to local and state plans and strategies.
EOFY is around the corner
And your contribution means everything to us!
Please think about making a tax-deductible donation this tax time to accelerate our campaigns for healthier, safer, more accessible streets that tackle climate change, improve the cost of living and support active kids.
All donations over $2 are fully tax deductible in Australia.
That means the amount you donate is claimable on your tax return.
Whether it's a one off or an ongoing donation we welcome your support and commit to investing your donation to creating a better environment for cycling.
Donations go to the Bicycle NSW Environmental Trust
The Bicycle NSW Environmental Trust was established in 2003 to promote bicycle riding. The Trust helps Bicycle NSW continue its valuable work of getting more people riding bikes through its program of events, advocacy, community building and membership.
Thanks so much to everyone that has donated already. Your gifts support the valuable advocacy work we do every day.
“I realise that the cost of living is biting and some of us are really struggling, but please donate if you can. Your donation is fully tax deductible and it directly benefits better bicycle outcomes for everyone”.
